16-Year-Old Girl Dies After Trapped Placenta Was Not Removed From Her Uterus!

A grieving mother seeks Department of Health when her 16-year-old daughter passed away last 25th of May, after giving birth in Bacoor District Hospital in Cavite. The young girl experienced complications when doctors failed to remove the placenta inside her uterus. She is moved to different hospitals twice despite her unstable condition when both refused to admit the girl until an initial deposit is settled.


In defense of Dra. Jocelyn Caballes, chief of BDH through a phone call, they are only on an infirmary level and can only operate normal birth deliveries. In addition, Caballes explained that they do not have an OB consultant. They referred them to larger hospitals when the placenta was not able to come out after 20-30 minutes.

Two nurses from BDH were in assistance as they transfer to Imus Family Hospital; wherein the mother is asked Php 10, 000 for a deposit before admitting her daughter in. The same scenario welcomed them in Medical Center Imus after staffs asked for Php 20, 000 downpayment.

MCI only administered help when the 16-year-old's condition worsen. According to the girl's death certificate, uterine inversion and undelivered placenta, and massive blood loss are the causes of her death.

Now with her daughter gone, several questions hang unanswered in her head: 1) Why weren't they able to discard the placenta? 2) Why are transportation vehicles such as the ambulance missing from the hospital's facility? 3) Why is profit the primary concern of hospitals instead of the patient's well-being?

Meanwhile, the Department of Health has issued the 3 hospitals a copy of complaint and is given 3 days to supply an adequate explanation.
